's go out to jacki schechner in los angeles, who is going to tell us how the twitter world is dealing with this question "are we better off"? >> the rnc bought the hashtag are you better off and it has taken long for progressives to hijack it and say yeah, we are better off. they paid for it, and they're certainly not getting what they paid for. it's not working for them. >> no, which i think is so typical of what we saw at the rnc, and hopefully what we won't see at the dnc, which is the republican strategy to consider to see twitter as a marketplace that you can buy that you can influence by promoting things and spending money on it. i think what we've seen the democrats be really good at is instead capitalizing on what people are interested in, think it's funny and what is resonant. >> on twitter knowing that the g.o.p.'s nominee actually pays his taxes. this is not a difficult one to rip on. one thing that cenk mentioned earlier on, the most retreated moment of the rnc is "this seat's taken" photo of barack obama after clint eastwood's nonemonologue to an empty chair. >> they can
american dream. it is the dream that brought my grandfather here from mexico to los angeles a century ago with no money, even less english, but an unshakable faith in the relationship between work and reward. it is the dream that allowed his grandson, the son of a single mom, to graduate from ucla. and, you know some people -- i got there on an affirmative- action program. some people would say i came in through the back door, but one thing is for sure -- i got out the front. [applause] that is the open, inclusive america we love. i went to work for farm workers and teachers. i went on to become the speaker of the california state assembly and now mayor of the city of los angeles. [applause] you know, i know how i got here -- i worked hard. i grew up in an america where hard work paid off. that is the promise of this great country. this week, we came to charlotte to restore that promise. while this convention ends tonight, our work is not done. in the days and weeks ahead, we will register more voters, knocked on more doors, get out more votes for this party and this president -- knock on
that a major party platform recognizes marriage equality as a basic human right! >> the los angeles mayor, who is also the chair of the 2012 democratic national convention committee. now more from president obama's speech. >>> this is the choice we now face. this is what the election comes down to. over and over we've been told by our opponents that bigger tax cuts and fewer regulations are the only way, that since government can't do everything, it should do almost nothing. if you can't afford health insurance, hope that you don't get sick. if a company releases toxic pollution into the air, your children breathe, well, that's the price of progress. if you can't afford to start a business or go to college, take my oppent's advice and borrow money from your parents. you know what? that's not who we are. that's not what this country is about. as americans, we believe we are endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights, rights that no man or government can take away. we insist on personal responsibility and we celebrate individual initiative. we're not entitled to success. we have to e
is cooperation. business and government, foundations and university. ask the mayors who are here. los angeles is getting green, and chicago is getting an infrastructure bank because republicans and democrats are working together to get it. they didn't check their brains at the door. they didn't start disagreeing. but their purpose was to get something done. now, why is this true? why does cooperation work better than constant conflict? because nobody is right all the time, and a broken clock is right twice a day. and every one of us, every one of us, and every one of them, we're compelled to spend our fleeting lives between these two extremes. knowing we're never going to be right all the time, and hopefully, we're right more than twice a day. unfortunately, the faction that now dominates the republican party doesn't see it that way. they think government is always the enemy. they're always right, and compromise is weakness. just in the last couple of elections, they defeated two distinguished republican senators because they dared to cooperate with democrats on issues important to the future
